Why WordPress is the Best Content Management System

Almost 30% of all websites on the web are powered by some form of CMS or Content Management System.  A CMS is a software program that is designed to make managing the content on your website easy, even if you have no experience in web developement or HTML. At Lifted Logic, we’ve built websites on several CMS platforms, but have found WordPress to be the best. Here’s why:

1) WORDPRESS HAS THE LARGEST USER COMMUNITY AND SUPPORT GROUP:
The more people using WordPress for their CMS, means more people testing it and therefore any bugs get spotted and fixed quicker. There’s also a bigger market for plugin developers and theme designers – therefore WordPress gets better quality themes and plugins.

2) USER FRIENDLY:
Everything about WordPress is more user friendly than any competing CMS.
Creating and editing pages can be easily done through a simple text editor.
Try doing basic things like creating menus, or adding a blog to other content management systems like Joomla or Drupal, and you will find it’s a nightmare.

3) BIG ORGANIZATIONS AND CORPORATIONS USE WORDPRESS:
Ford, Best Buy, CNN and Wallstreet Journal are just a couple examples of large corporations that use WordPress.  Visit: WordPress.org/showcase to view more examples of high profile websites built on WordPress.

4) GOOGLE LOVES WORDPRESS:
WordPress software, makes your site easily crawlable by search engines, takes care of nearly all of the mechanics of SEO (80-90%) and is the first big step anyone can take towards creating a popular online business.

These are just some of the reasons why we love WordPress.  The team at Lifted Logic are experts at using this software and would love the opportunity to design your website using this platform or give you advise on your current WordPress site. Whether you are a new company trying to establish a presence online or an estabilished company revamping or updating the look and flow of your site, we can help.  Give us a call today at 816.298.3787.
